Let's see, what have I for you today... Two little inspirations and some tossed in things for good measure.
I found this little silver frame for a song at JoAnn's and have until last night had a small picture of a Christmas tree made of birds in it. This is so much better for its wonderful message. I found it at Kim's Seasons of My Heart. (Edited to Add: I believe that I have tracked it down to its original source at Betty Crocker Wannabe. Thanks to all who were keeping me straight! Yes, it is available free. Thanks to Kristin who now blogs at A Simply Klassic Home.)
Can you tell that I really like my new kitchen window?
Whatever would give it away?
Actually, these photos were taken to make Auntie happy. Auntie who enjoys seeing photos taken at night in bad light and that's all right. As soon as there is snow flying, I'm going to take another photo just like my header photo only in Christmas mode. It may be awhile.
See it? It's a little train coming through a book tunnel. I don't know about you, but I find it adorable. Perhaps it's having a grandson visiting this afternoon that is making me think of the whimsy that would delight a little boy. You just know that this arrangement is not going to stay this pristine.
And, right on cue, just as I suspected, Fioré hopped up there and messed it all up. By the time I returned from writing this post and to shut off the lights, this is what I found. The book slapped shut, the train on the floor, and Fioré enjoying her ease. She does love the tree.
This next one cracks me up. Remember my mitten garland of a few days ago? Look what I found! A sweet mitten garland divider with red ribbons...now I can do the same. Here's my garland reworked a bit.
Oops. Guess you'll have to trust me on this one...red ribbons on either end and in the middle. Looks darling. No, really. I'm adding candy canes to the mittens next.
I just did that so I could use the mitten divider again. Such a child I am. That's what you get for playing with trains and children's books. Here we go again with a new interpretation for train and tunnel elsewhere.
Have a magical weekend! Have you been playing yet today? Hope so!
